bag – asos tassel bowler bag
Recently I went to a White Sox patio party/game. This is usually fun in terms of fashion because you get to see lots of people heading to the stadium straight from work in interesting/nice clothing. While I was admiring various outfits people had on, I noticed a lady who had a blue boxy bowler bag. It looked fantastic, and the next day I scoured the web for a similar bag. What I found was this, and I quite liked it.
ASOS tends to have nice bags, and though this wasn’t designer quality it certainly was well put together. The faux leather fabric was soft and realistic, the bag had a nice shape and good construction. I thought the scotty dog fitting was a bit much/gaudy, but it still adds a bit of charm to the bag. I didn’t quite like how big it is. you can see in the pictures above that it’s quite boxy and fat. Depending on the type of bag you’re going for, this could be a good or bad thing.
Ultimately I ended up returning it, but that’s mostly because between when I ordered it and when it arrived (which was a good 10 or so days since it came from the UK) I bought my Kate Spade Pippa. The Pippa is a really similar shape, so I decided I didn’t need two bags that were pretty much the same. That said, if I hadn’t bought the Pippa I probably would have kept this guy. I also really like it in nude and with a cute little bun fitting in adorable rose pink.
